Where can I see the current status of essentry kiosks?

In this article, we explain where you can find the current status and possible error messages of your essentry devices.

To do this, go to "COMPANY" > "DEVICES" via the left menu bar.

The following overview is separated into:

  • "Current errors and warnings"
  • "Devices"

Only the user groups "Super Admin" and "Local Admin" have access to this section. The "Local Admin" will only be shown the site devices assigned to him.

The following errors are displayed:

    The iPad is not connected to any power supply.

To get an overview ("monitoring") of a device's bug history and associated uptime, simply click on the corresponding device in the "Current bugs and warnings" section.
You can also get the same overview by clicking on the column icon on the right side in the "Devices" section:






The monitoring overview provides you with a precise overview of the error history of a device. The time period displayed can be customized. In addition, warnings can be hidden in the list view.

The "Device availability" diagram shows the uptime in percent on a daily basis. A distinction is made between "absolute availability" and "adjusted availability".
Absolute availability: All faults
Adjusted availability: Faults that occur through the fault of essentry (software updates or other problems).
In addition to the daily overview, the total adjusted availability in the selected period is displayed as a percentage.
